The Dubbo Neighbourhood Centre Ltd., operating as Connecting Community Services, is a community based Not for Profit Organisation working in co-operation with the Dubbo Regional Council, along with State and Federal Government agencies. Our role is to provide a variety of community services that assist families, children, youth and older people to achieve their own well-being and enhance the quality of life of disadvantaged groups in the community.
Since it’s inception in 1974, the Dubbo Neighbourhood Centre (DNC) has been managed by a community Management committee Board, and the work and dedication of community representatives and staff over the years has developed the centre into what it is today.
